This is not controversy. And it did not start with The stupid CFL which are A complete and unmitigated disaster. People have been warning about the tubes since the 1980s. They have been ignored and now I am taking up the banner as a chemical engineer who understands the horror this is inflicting on the world that no one can see taste or feel
The sooner we stop this the sooner we stop millions of people a day from being irreversibly poisoned
It was simply the GREED of the MERCURY PURVEYORS who said.
’ hey let’s get our mercury lamps into every home now !’
Around 1994. Then they paid the bureaucrats and the global warming fools to pick up the banner For the last 20 yrs. it’s ongoing
Save the planet. Install CFLs they said
Now these highly dangerous noxious and toxic lamps are in every none
Because of this now everyone MUST be aware of the truth
Not just business owners who STILL after 70 years of these things mostly don’t know they are filled with mercury gas
BTW. I have never met Anyone who likes fluorescents. No one
They suck and are terrible light. No decent restaurant would use them
Hey, I’m with ya, FRiend. I just never heard a word about mercury in those things until CFLs hit the market. That’s why I asked.
